Being able to smile with confidence is a beautiful feeling that everyone deserves. However, very few of us are born with perfect teeth. Dental flaws are sometimes hard to ignore and can affect self-confidence.
Luckily, cosmetic dentistry comes to the rescue. Using the latest techniques and materials, it is possible to improve the health and beauty of nearly any smile in Northern Ireland. Cosmetic dentistry is available in many dental practices, including Blue Sky, offering a wide variety of treatments for patients who wish to improve the health and appearance of their teeth.
Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic dentistry is affordable and can benefit patients in many ways. Here are a few popular cosmetic dentistry treatments patients can take advantage of.
Teeth whitening is a fast, popular and cost-effective method of lightening the colour of stained or discoloured teeth. This is achieved through a controlled bleaching process, which can be carried out either at home using custom-made whitening trays or at the dental practice in less than an hour. Both methods are entirely safe and effective.
Dental veneers have long been used to fix various dental flaws. Essentially, they are very thin porcelain shells attached to the front surface of the teeth. They are considered a minimally invasive solution for patients requiring improvement of the shape, colour, or position of their teeth. Veneers are among the most versatile items in a cosmetic dentist’s toolbox, since they can fix many problems at the same time. The results are fairly predictable, from the shape to the exact colour of each veneer.
Patients who have decayed teeth or wish to remove metal fillings due to aesthetic considerations, can benefit from white composite fillings. White fillings are made of a combination of plastic and glass and have the ability to blend in with the rest of the teeth, creating a beautiful effect. White fillings also support the remaining tooth structure, preventing breakage and further decay.
Cosmetic dentistry in Northern Ireland is both an art and science. An experienced cosmetic dentist can offer smile enhancement, restoration and maintenance treatments for long-lasting oral health.
